ZENITH Defy 21 Ultrablue. 2021 Novelty.

@Zenith Watches

With this 4K-video we present you the Zenith Defy Ultrablue, indicating the 1/100th of a second on the dial. Zenith continues to highlight the concept of high-frequency precision through creations in its 1/100th of a second chronograph, the Defy 21. This translation of high oscillation frequencies into single regions of the visible light spectrum began with the Defy 21 Ultraviolet in 2020, which features the world’s first violet-coloured chronograph movement, standing out against the entirely muted case in matte sandblasted titanium. Now, Zenith applies the same striking effect in cool tones of deep indigo and electric blue in the Defy 21 Ultrablue. The partially open dial features slightly overlapping closed chronograph counters, finished in a grey tone matching the deep grey of the case with contrasting white markings for legibility. The vividly blue movement is accentuated by the Defy 21’s avant-garde movement conception and design with open and angular bridges. A white-tipped central 1/100th of a second chronograph hand makes a complete revolution above the dial in one second…
